oh bugger....

Post by Lord Foul on Fri Nov 24, 2017 11:22 pm

well there we was down in our bit of wood (one of a number of plots within a bigger wood)
and theres me singin to myself whilst working...nice songs like "the lumberjack song" and the hedgehog song (which i posted here a bit back and everyone politely ignored Laughing )

when allong tootles some of the other guys who own plots in said wood. Hmm says they a baritone no less...and methinks...a loud one

well we are planning, weather permitting a bit of a get together down here on the week comming up to christmas...

sounds good says I especially since thursday will be the 21st

yes they says ...and...we are planning a sort of do in the welsh bardic tradition.. His missus is a harper says one so...you can sing something suitably welsh for us ...IN WELSH...

ULP......well you are learning to speak it are you not...well yes..........says I but......

No buts says he, the local lkand owner will be comming weve invited him and him and his lot are welsh as they come....

oh FGS I says ....

nope they says you have to learn this

" Llwyn Onn"

OMG.........


the words in welsh




Ym mhalas Llwyn Onn gynt, fe drigai pendefig,
Efe oedd ysgweiar ac arglwydd y wlad;
Ac iddo un eneth a anwyd yn unig,
A hi nôl yr hanes oedd aeres ei thad.
Aeth cariad i'w gweled yn lân a phur lencyn,
Ond codai'r ysgweiar yn araf ac erch,
I aethu'r bachgennyn, ond gwyrodd ei linyn,
A'i ergyd yn wyrgam i fynwes ei ferch.

Rhy hwyr ydoedd galw y saeth at y llinyn
Â'r llances yn marw yn welw a gwan;
Bygythiodd ei gleddyf trwy galon y llencyn,
Ond ni redai cariad un fodfedd o'r fan.
Roedd golud, ei darpar, yn hen ac anynad,
A geiriau diwethaf yr aeres hardd hon,
Oedd, 'Gwell gennyf farw trwy ergyd fy nghariad
Na byw gyda golud ym mhalas Llwyn Onn.'



ok...

just ........wait........a........mo

yes you should be able to sound something like this he says.......







EH WOT ????????????????????????????


ummm...just a couple of small points.....

1) I dont have the voice...and CERTAINLY not one to match that
2) he's a welshman born and bred
3) there will be no time to practice with the harper....

OH DEAR......what have i gotten into????

not ONLY that but THIS AGGGHHHHHHHHHHH


Tawel nos

Tawel nos dros y byd,
Sanctaidd nos gylch y crud;
Gwylion dirion yr oedd addfwyn ddau,
Faban Duw gyda'r llygaid bach cau,
Iesu T'wysog ein hedd.

Sanctaidd nos gyda'i ser;
Mantell fwyn,cariad per
Mintai'r bugail yn dod i fwynhau
Baban Duw gyda'r llygaid bach cau,
Iesu T'wysog ein hedd.

Tawel nos, Duw ei Hun
Ar y llawr gyda dyn;
Cerddi'r engyl, a'r Ne'n trugarhau;
Baban Duw gyda'r llygaid bach cau,
Iesu, T'wysog ein hedd.


(silent night to you lot)

Hmmmm, fair concerns mate, but how well do you know the languages of Lord of the Rings?

Some of them are based on Celtic langauges.
That must help?

Piture learning the song, as if it was part of Lord of the Rings?

(wtch some youtube vids to learn how it is spoken as well)

Come on mate, you can build anything. Apply the same thought process to this, as it being a challenge.

Good luck

Don't be insulted, but you are a tad of a perfectionist mate.

I have seen your great skills and the heart you put into your work, when you build and create something.

Its something I greatly admire.

You are taking this angle here, from some friends you have met, that you need to be perfect here in not only getting this right, language wise but in tune and sounding well.

Let me put your fears to rest.

They won't care whther you can sing in tune or get it right or be perfect.

Its you placing this massive expectation on yourself, not them.

He is busting your balls, as an Englishman. As he has played to the very sensitivities you have.

Perfection (not knocking, as its what makes you great)

He just wants you to be a part of their celebrations and knows you will do your best mate

Yes practice, but its the negativity that is stopping you here and not allowing you to belt it out, when the time comes.

It really does not matter how you sound, which is not the problem. As I bet to you, its all about if you sound it perfectly in welsh..

You seem to place a high status bar for yourself... No need mate

They will be just pleased that you wanted to be a part of their traditions and tried.

I think it will be you looking more like Redwood when it's time for your 'sing-a-long'...!

Enjoying someone singing isn't about them hitting the right notes. It's about passion.
If you enjoy it - everyone else will. That's a given.

Don't be insulted, but you are a tad of a perfectionist mate.

I have seen your great skills and the heart you put into your work, when you build and create something.

Its something I greatly admire.

You are taking this angle here, from some friends you have met, that you need to be perfect here in not only getting this right, language wise but in tune and sounding well.

Let me put your fears to rest.

They won't care whther you can sing in tune or get it right or be perfect.

Its you placing this massive expectation on yourself, not them.

He is busting your balls, as an Englishman. As he has played to the very sensitivities you have.

Perfection (not knocking, as its what makes you great)

He just wants you to be a part of their celebrations and knows you will do your best mate

Yes practice, but its the negativity that is stopping you here and not allowing you to belt it out, when the time comes.

It really does not matter how you sound, which is not the problem. As I bet to you, its all about if you sound it perfectly in welsh..

You seem to place a high status bar for yourself... No need mate

They will be just pleased that you wanted to be a part of their traditions and tried.


aw, didge

that is quite possibly the wisest and nicest post i've seen you make for some time

i shall give you a green and a hug
